The English TKD and the other books about tlhIngan Hol written by Marc
Okrand certainly are the most reliable source for words and grammar. So, if
you understand at least some English, I'll recommend you to get TKD. If you
have trouble getting one, you can get the program <pojwI'> from the
internet. You can use it to check the vocabulary. It has some other
interesting and helpful features, too. If you don't trust your ability to
speak English at all, see http://www.online.de/home/levinius/klingon/dow.htm
